MILWAUKEE -- Cubs reliever Jose Veras has a sore left oblique and is day to day, manager Rick Renteria said Friday.

Veras pitched on Thursday against the D-backs, and gave up two runs in one inning. It was his sixth appearance this season. The right-hander lost his job as the closer after blowing a two-run lead on April 11 against the Cardinals, and Thursday was only his second appearance since then.

"Veras is a little sore with his left oblique, and hopefully he'll be OK," Renteria said. "He's been working really hard and developed a little soreness. He's a very hard worker. We'll monitor it and see how he's doing."

The Cubs have eight relievers in the bullpen, including Veras, after adding lefty Zac Rosscup and right-hander Neil Ramirez on Thursday.
